The brand new NARS Gentle Reflecting Basis is a basis with skincare advantages described as a method that may blur, clean, conceal and preserve moisture. Based on NARS the method is 70% skincare. The NARS staff despatched just a few shades and I discovered my greatest match to be both Santa Fe M2 or Sahel M2.5. I’m at my lightest proper now, many of the 12 months I’m often a match to Vanuatu M3.5 or Barcelona M4.
